What on earth would Leo Castelli have thought? - The Art Newspaper Mentions Shantell Martin

by Ryan Salinetti

Mention: "Shantell Martin: She is an artist working across different media who posts everything she makes on Instagram. “I started Instagram later than most people. I don’t have any traditional photography experience, but I like taking pictures,” Martin told Fortune magazine. “There are definitely Instagram moments in my work. When I’m working, a part of me says, ‘That’s a really great Instagram moment.’ I try to post once or twice a day.” The UK-born artist straddles the art, commerce and luxury sectors and has embraced working with big-name brands, having daubed her trademark black-and-white etchings on the walls of Lane Crawford, an Asian department store. She also worked on a special commission for the Bulgari jewellery emporium in New York, and was cast as herself in the US TV series “Gossip Girl”. She is an adjunct professor on the ITP programme at New York University."—By Gareth Harris and Anny Shaw. From Art Basel Miami Beach daily edition
